Short Spaghetti aka Goulash Recipe



This is another favorite meal from when I was a child. We called it "short spaghetti" but many of you may call it a sort of a "goulash". This is a very simple recipe and it's good to make on a weeknight. I usually have most of these ingredients in the pantry so it's a great go-to recipe for us! Hope you enjoy it was much as we do!

What you need:
4 c. elbow macaroni noodles
1 pound ground beef
1 medium onion, diced
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 tsp. dried basil
2- 15 oz. cans tomato sauce
1- 14.5 oz. can diced tomatoes
salt and pepper

Directions:
Cook elbow macaroni according to package directions. Meanwhile, brown ground beef, onion, garlic, basil, salt and pepper until ground beef is cooked through. Add tomato sauce and diced tomatoes and simmer sauce until noodles are finished. Combine sauce and noodles. Season with more salt and pepper as needed. Top with parmesan cheese and serve with some buttered bread!

  4. I don't know how many time your sister and I made that dish for lunch during the summers in high school! We even made it once for your uncle Norman at your Grandma's house. We shopped at the old Rum River Store for the ingredients :) Memories that make me smile.
